    All About Car Hire Extra Costs in Caloundra

    Why do Some Other Companies Charge Concealed Auto Hire Fees?It wouldn't shock us to learn that you have looked at more than one website to compare and contrast daily prices on Caloundra auto hire. But not all quoted car rates are the same. If a deal is too good to be true, you can trust your instincts. Many web car hire services do not include the mandatory industry taxes and fees that are legally required of everyone hiring a car in Caloundra. Be certain that if you opt-for that discount offer somewhere else, you'll have a hefty bill waiting for you at the pick-up countre, and the total cost may be more than Auto Europe's advertised rates.

    Auto Europe makes a big effort to show an inclusive, no-strings-attached price to our valued customers. We've learned that smart travellers want to understand the total cost of their car hire when they confirm their booking. The short overview we've written will provide insight about several of the most frustrating car hire taxes and surcharges other sites may be concealing from you. The short overview that comes next should help you make sense of car hire industry language and avoid paying too much for your Caloundra car.

    Cross-Border Driving Costs for Caloundra Vehicle Reservations

    $$$ Always Disclosed by Auto Europe Sometimes Disclosed by Others

    Most car hire companies in Europe and around the world have to cover the cost of additional permitting if you plan to drive their vehicle across international borders. If your itinerary will take you into a neighbouring nation while driving in Caloundra, this cost may be passed on to you in the form of an international travel fee, often labeled as a Cross Border Fee or a Travel to Other Countries surcharge. This cost is generally not prohibitive (as long as you plan to return your vehicle in Caloundra. Some local car hire companies may not allow you to drive their vehicles across international borders at all, but if they do you can expect to pay somewhere in the $20 - $50 range.

    Limited vs. Unlimited Mileage Vehicle Hire Add-On Charges

    $ Always Disclosed by Auto Europe Always Disclosed by Others

    If your car hire agreement features a Limited Kilometres or Limited Miles clause, pay careful attention to the specifics. Some car hire agencies will charge you a $0.50 - $2 fee per additional mile or kilometre driven above and beyond the stated maximum. Most Auto Europe hires in Caloundra include unlimited mileage (which is clearly stated in our online booking engine), to allow you to drive as much as you want as you explore Caloundra.

    Processing Charges for Caloundra Theft or Accident Insurance Claims

    $$$ Always Disclosed by Auto Europe Rarely Disclosed by Others

    If your vehicle hire in Caloundra is involved in a theft or accident which results in an insurance claim, you may be charged a Processing Fee or Administration Fee outside of any deductible, which will cover the cost of the additional paperwork the car hire company must process in resolving the claim. These fees often surprise travellers, because they are charged to your credit card after the fact, but it is standard practice in the industry and you can expect this cost to be between $30 and $50.

    Value Added Tax for Car Hire in Caloundra

    $$ Always Disclosed by Auto Europe Sometimes Disclosed by Others

    Most European countries charge international travellers a VAT Tax (or Value Added Tax) on all goods and services. You are responsible for paying this charge (which tends to fall in the 15-30% range depending upon the Caloundra you are touring). Some online car hire companies will not include this mandatory tax in their quoted price to try to make their rates appear lower. If you see Plus VAT or Taxes Extra in the car hire contract you can assume that you'll be required to pay this tax locally when you pick up your car hire in Caloundra. Be sure you budget accordingly, or contact Auto Europe to see if we can beat the price.

    Mandated Local Taxes for Your Caloundra Car Hire

    $ Always Disclosed by Auto Europe Rarely Disclosed by Others

The cost of these mandatory charges is usually low ($1 - 45 per day), and they are required by law for drivers in many locations around the world. Many online car hire services do not disclose these hidden fees, so we make an effort to be up front and transparent about them so you know what you€ll be paying for your car hire in Caloundra before you depart on your trip.
